Couple things that a few drivers could straighen out but other than that I quiet like this card and recommend the most it since the R9 series is glorified 7970GHz Editions, and the GHz edition itself is less overclockable. 1080P is no big deal for this card but some games just slaughter my card *ie FarCry 3. This could be my card but the filers and lighting seem to bring it down to 30fps. Ghosts is locked p92Ffps, and yes, it plays Minecraft, at 2600Fps.
Exellent card, powerful, well built, and versatile. Make sure you check the size of this card out to make sure it will fit in your system before making the purchase but for me it fit easly in my Thermaltake Chaser Mk 1 with room to spare. Planning to get a second card to run in crossfire soon.
Note; does seem to throw alot of heat into the case... exhaust port on the card is only about half of a slot the other 2 slots it takes up is just heatsink and card... with that said the GPU core temps even under heavy load seem to be ok its the case temps that seem to have gone up...
I haven't received my cards yet but with all the reviews I've done this should be an amazing card, these should be just what I need and for $269.00 I couldn't resist. I bought two of these for a crossfire configuration. I thought of getting an R9 series card but being new on the market they probably are going to be overpriced for not much more performance.
Edit (1 month later - Oct 16,2013): YES, vcore can change with bios mod and flash. I used VBE7(7b) to increase my vcore (VDDC) to 1.218v, Core Clock to 1125, memory to 1650, and TDP to 231W. Memory requires 1.625v for stability, need to change it in GPU Tweak. So, in the end, 1125/1650! So, I'm increasing my rating to 5 stars because of the performance ... (still using DVI though).
Overall this is a phenomenal card. Unfortunately only one of the DVI ports is a dual link DVI so you can only run one monitor at 120hz if you happen to have 2 that are both. If your monitors are display port you can run all 4 at 120hz and then 2 more at 60 for all 6. There is a switch located on the card that turns the 1 DVI into a dual link but this disables a display port.
